ROLL-OH, THE DOMESTIC ROBOT, IS CONSTRUCTED TO TAKE CARE OF MANY DISAGREEABLE HOUSEHOLD CHORES. SCARES THE MAILMAN. GOOD HUMOROUS GAG FILM.
Ken Smith sez: Roll-Oh is a big, clunky, slow-moving robot -- a "chromium-plated butler" of the future -- and Jam Handy uses him as a metaphor to show how "robots" (such as thermostats and automatic choke controls) make modern driving a breeze. Roll-Oh can light candles with his breath and water plants with his fingertips, even though you know he's only a bunch of cardboard boxes painted silver. Watch for the the demostration of the "Petomat," and the scene where Roll-Oh uses his vacuum feet. More robots in films, please!
